MVD Hearings

Arizona MVD Hearings

Retain a Qualified Scottsdale DUI Lawyer

If you are stopped by police and determined to have a blood alcohol content of 0.08 you will be arrested for DUI and your license will be suspended for a period of 90 days. Once arrested, you must request a hearing with the Motor Vehicle Department (MVD) in order to contest a license suspension. Having a Scottsdale DUI attorney by your side during this hearing can be of great benefit to you and increase your chances of success.

You have 15 days from your arrest to request a hearing through the MVD to keep your driver's license. You need to make sure you can navigate MVD issues and submit request for hearing is filed correctly and on time. This is when having a legal advocate from the Law Offices of Randall J. Craig as representation can go a long way, especially with your driving privileges on the line.

What happens during a hearing?

If an administrative law judge receives your request and believes the "scope of the hearing" has been met, they can dismiss your suspension.

If you lost your license due to DUI, the scope of the hearing will include a determining of:

  • Whether the officer had reasonable grounds for stopping you
  • If you were arrested for DUI or underage DUI
  • You were found to have a blood alcohol content to 0.08 or greater
  • The manner of testing was valid and reliable

If your license was suspended because you refused a chemical test, it will be used to determine:

  • Whether the officer had grounds for stopping you
  • If you were placed under arrest for DUI justly
  • If you refused or failed to submit to a test as requested
  • Whether you were made aware of the consequences of a refusal

    “I truly believe you are the best lawyer around!”

    Dear Randall:

    I am sure you do not remember me, but you represented me in my case. I was a heroin addict and have not been clean for over 4 years. I don’t think I have ever properly thanked you. You really fought hard for me and thanks to you believing in me, I really have turned my life around. There is not a day that goes by I do not live with regret. However I really am working hard on that thing we call “forgiveness”. Thank you for everything. I truly believe you are the best lawyer around!

    “We won and he sent me $1,500 back telling me since it only took him 3 days, the balance of the retainer was owed me. Wow. Never heard of that before! Very refreshing! We won too! I knew we would. Good guy, good lawyer.”
    I paid him $5,000 to do quick trial after firing my old lawyer. It only took him 3 days to get ready. We won and he sent me $1,500 back telling me since it only took him 3 days, the balance of the retainer was owed me. Wow. Never heard of that before! Very refreshing! We won too! I knew we would. Good guy, good lawyer.

    “ I ended up spending twice as much for bumbling incompetence. I received more good advice FREE from Randall than the bum I paid. If I need a Lawyer again in AZ, it will be Randall.”
    I screwed up bad by not getting this lawyer. He gave me a flat rate which I thought was a little high for what seemed like a slam dunk case. I stupidly went for another lawyer's sales pitch who promised to go after corrupt cops (he didn't). I ended up spending twice as much for bumbling incompetence. I received more good advice FREE from Randall than the bum I paid. If I need a Lawyer again in AZ, it will be Randall.

    “His staff kept me informed, Mr. Craig kept me calm, and in the end he was able to negotiate the right deal for me. He has simple flat rates and doesn't bill you for things like copies and phone calls.”
    Having never committed a crime, ending up in jail was a humiliating experience for me. His staff kept me informed, Mr. Craig kept me calm, and in the end he was able to negotiate the right deal for me. He has simple flat rates and doesn't bill you for things like copies and phone calls.
